Yes, that's correct.  I've killed the USexportable images on open,
with a view to making room for dual-CD#1 US/nonUS testing later this

auric is MUCH quicker than open, and has loads of bandwidth, so CD
production there is only hampered by it's location in the USA.

I think auric should probably be given a CNAME record of something
like cdimage-us.debian.org, and be considered the USexportable image
master (even if we actually end up making the US images outside the
states in reality).

Cheers, Phil.
